Information About RADIUS Interim Update at Call Connect

When the RADIUS Interim Update at Call Connect feature enabled, Cisco IOS software generates and sends an additional updated interim accounting record to the accounting server when a call leg is connected. A call leg is a distinct segment of a call connection in a voice over IP (VOIP) network that is a logical connection between the router and either a telephony endpoint over a bearer channel, or another endpoint using a session protocol. All attributes (for example, h323-connect-time and backward-call-indicators) available at the time of call connection are sent through this interim updated accounting record.

Perform the following task to enable the Cisco IOS to generate and send an additional updated interim accounting record to the accounting server when a call leg is connected.
